lululemon Global Running Day 5k Challenge and Competition

In uncertain and stressful times, running has always provided an escape, an invaluable channel to release stress and negative thoughts.

Tomorrow (Wednesday June 3rd) is the Global Running Day, and to mark the occasion, lululemon Middle East are hosting a competition for UAE residents. As a lululemon ambassador, I will be gifting two outfits and choosing two winners for a running top and running shorts/pants.

To take part, follow these simple steps:

  1. If you are not on Strava, create an account and set up your profile on (Can be done on desktop or by downloading the mobile app).

  2. Join the lululemon Global Running Day 5K challenge (On desktop, use this link to join the challenge:, on the app, find the challenge under the Explore tab’s challenges section).  

  3. Run 5k any time on Wednesday 3 safely at your own pace June and log it on Strava (If you are a new Strava user, you can pair your GPS watch with the app before your run or simply track your run on the Strava app itself while you run).

  4. After the run, tag @lululemonme on Instagram + tag me (@omardxb) to enter the draw.

The winners will be selected via a random draw and announced soon.

All the best peeps!
